Boston-area Ice Rink Orders Second Chiller
WALTHAM, MA–(Marketwired – March 27, 2018) – Tecogen® Inc.(NASDAQ: TGEN), a clean energy company providing ultra-efficient, clean, natural gas powered on-site power, heating and cooling equipment, is pleased to announce that an ice rink in the suburban Boston area has ordered a second Tecochill STx Series water-cooled chiller to accompany the same chiller installed in late 2016. As with the first unit, the purchase of the second unit qualifies for local utility incentives due to its energy efficiency rating. Tecogen will provide ongoing maintenance following installation by a third-party contractor. The unit is likely to ship by early April.
“Tecochill is a true power-play for ice rinks. It gives them the ability to produce their ice at half the cost and provides ample free hot water to all of the necessary thermal loads at a rink such as ice resurfacing, dehumidification, ice pit melting, sub soil heating, domestic hot water production for showers, and even space heating,” according to Tecogen Product Manager Stephen Lafaille. “At the time of the initial sale in 2016, it was apparent that there may be a need for a second chiller. Six-figure savings in the first full year of operation and 99.9% uptime from the first chiller and a substantial incentive from the local utility certainly aided the owner’s decision to work with us again. The local electric utility also projected rate hikes over the coming years while the owner’s research into natural gas futures indicates that his spark spread is likely to only get wider.”
“Ice rinks are an integral part of Tecogen’s broad and diverse customer base,” stated Benjamin Locke, Tecogen’s Co-CEO. “A repeat customer is an unbeatable endorsement of both our products and service. We’ve worked hard to be able to provide the best service possible for our customers as it’s critical to optimize the value proposition that our products can provide.”
